The Q&A Archives: Holes in our veggies

Question: We have a lot of little holes in our our leaves. I've bought organic pest control spray as well as put up fly paper in hopes to stop the problem. But It seems to get worse. Any other suggestions to help minimize the problem are greatly appreciated!

Answer: It's hard to know what to suggest! If you have used organic pest control, that should take care of insects, but it won't do anything to control caterpillars. You can use Bt (sold as Dipel or Thuricide) which is effective against caterpillars, but not insects. Hope this helps!
